After having very bad pain in my left breast. I found a Lump acfually inside the nipple itself like a stone is inside my nipple . Its hard, and doesnt move. I was referred to breast specialist who i saw today. They felt the lump, sent me for a ultrasound (26 apparently too young for a mamogram) and the imaging couldn't detect the lump at all, and although she found some what i would call blacker spots she ultrasound the other breast and she said they are they same and shes not concerned.
I then had to wait for results I went back in with the Nurse practioner, who said they can not find the lump although they can clearly feel it and that the consultant wanted to see me personally so he couls feel it for himself. So in he came had a feel and he could also feel it straight away. He said he hasnt come across this type of lump before, he doesnt think its cancerous and hes going to ask a few people about it... But just to keep an eye on it and he wants me back for a follow up app at breast clinic in 4 weeks app confirmed there and then. Where he said he would see if anything has changed and either think about a mamogram or something a bit more serious. (Which im assuming might be a biopsy.. i should have asked).. ive also read googled (bad i know) that they cant do a biopsy on a lump that can not be seen incase they miss it completely?, and they may do.a.surgical biopsy . Is this correct?
So I came out buzzing that its not cancer and felt relieved.. yet now this evening its back on my mind. Doesnt all lumps show on a ultrasound.. why are they sending me for these tests. Is it just to find out.what the lump is? Is there still a chance this could be cancer?. Im sure its nothing. But i wish they colld just gave said . Oh yes its a cyst! Rather than the unknown. I know this should be happy news but i dont feel settled .
Has anyone had a lump they couldnt detect on ultrasound.
What happenes next ?
And if anyone has had simular, what was your lump ..
